Notes from Strade Bianche:

"Thanks to Fabio the Ghidella family has grown from the small vineyard close to their home to 5 hectares that are in the organic conversion process. Fabio's grandfather passed down the lessons that grapes need to be grown naturally and that chemicals and pesticides have no place in the vineyard that is right next to their family home. Fabio also listened to and gravitated towards his grandfather's approach of traditional (natural) wine making that had been practiced in Italy for centuries before the advent of modern agri-business after WWII. The vineyards surround the beautiful village of Moasca with its wonderful Renaissance castle. Fabio collaborates with an excellent consultant in Claudio Dacasto, who is a young and well known enologist in Piemonte. We know Claudio very well, and can attest to his expertise, as he also consults for two other Piedmontese producers we import: Cascina La Barbatella and La Masera."
